This Saturday, music retailers were filled with thousands of new releases and countless fans willing to line up outside in order to add a few of them to their collections. Yes, it was time for another Record Store Day, and Rolling Stone celebrated by sending photographers to 10 shops across the country – not just from New York to L.A. but as far south as Hawaii and as far north as Alaska. See the rock legends, creative gimmicks and crate-digging patrons that made this year's event so special.
